The recent high growth in company profits points that the job market in the US is to improve significantly.
"... economy-wide corporate profits rose 9.7% annualized in Q4 2010, which was roughly twice what we were expecting. Since the recession ended, profits have grown at a sturdy 27% annualized pace."
"... profits per private sector employee are at an all-time high-well above their pre-recession peak."
The correlation is usually two quarters apart so mid-2011 should mark a hot labor market.
